It’s gotten easier to drop a modern Coyote engine fitted to a Classic Ford F100 Truck

There is no argument that the 5.0L dual overhead cam (DOHC)  known as the “Coyote” modular V-8, is great. So with Over 460 hp without the use of a supercharger,

The Coyote’s cylinder head design, camshafts, and trick electronic valve timing control each cam  controlled with independence

This means a new modular not only made good power but actually had usable torque down low. Something the Mustang was missing since its pushrod days.

The Coyote is a wide engine to fit into the engine bay. There are several schools of thought here, including all-new front suspension systems. They remove the shock towers completely, or strut-based front suspensions. It requires the very top of the shock tower to keep, but the rest can be trimmed back for engine clearance. The strut-based systems are a bolt-in. Though cutting and welding are required for trimming the shock towers. There are front suspension conversions in the aftermarket. If your front frame rails are in rust.

4R70W Coyote Automatic



  • Smart Shift electronics,
  • manual lever sensor,
  • block plate, flexplate,
  • converter and attaching bolts.



As mentioned earlier, wiring the Coyote is a breeze if you use the Control Pack kit. It includes;

  • The body harness,
  • Inlet ducting
  • And air box,
  • Drive-by-wire throttle pedal,
  • Oxygen sensors,
  • And fuse box.

Once connecting, the harness to the crate engine and the pedal. You will have about six wire leads to connect to power the engine.


 The Coyote crate engine does not come packaged with any drive accessories. A couple options one is an  alternator kit with drive belt for the Coyote. Which includes the Boss 302 alternators, high-tension belt tensioner, and serpentine drive belt.

If you’re running manual steering and no A/C, the alternator kit is all you need. But if you’re looking to go all out with full accessories then you’ll need to i One such setup is this Front Runner system.  The kit uses the industry standard Sanden A/C compressor and GM Type II power steering pump.  Along with custom brackets and spring-loaded belt tensioner. To offer a very compact setup on the passenger side of the engine.

5.0 Coyote Engine Swap Kit


The Gen 2 oil pan retrofit fits most F100 Chassis with a small body or suspension lift.  .

Long tube Coyote Headers

Some builders use the stock iron manifolds. With the Coyote swap headers for F100 And you designed it to fit the TCI and Heidts Pro-G IFS systems, though they may work with other suspensions.

Phantom Fuel pump kit

To feed that Coyote 5.0L’s EFI you’re going to need Fuel Tank EFI fuel system. The stock single feed line is not EFI capable.  It is not to mention you’ll need a return line to the tank, a high-pressure EFI pump, and more. You have a few options here, one being the Aeromotive Phantom fuel system. In a nutshell, it is a pump, mounting bracket, and sump in one unit. Simply cut a hole in your tank and drop it in. Aeromotive offers the Phantom by itself and as a kit with EFI regulator, fittings, filter, and more. Add the length of -6 AN hose you need and an adapter fitting for the fuel rail and you’re all set.

Coyote fuel return

This is the Aeromotive fuel rail adapter for the modular engine like the Coyote. Slip the adapter into the open fuel rail on your crate engine until it locks in place. The opposite end is machined with a male -6 AN fitting for a standard AN hose connection. The Coyote, being return fuel from the factory, only has one fuel rail connection. So the fuel line routing needs to be set up. The fuel return line comes off of the fuel pressure regulator. With one pressure line connecting to the engine.

Cooling System

Cooling the Coyote 5.0L in your swap isn’t much difficult.  The engine is fitting with an aluminum billet hose to hookup your radiator hoses more easily.  There is a complete Radiator, Electric Fan and Shroud kit for the early Broncos made by champion. Link here  

Early  Coyote Swap




Throttle pedal Coyote

The Control Pack needs a drive-by-wire pedal. It will need you to mount thorough a custom-fabricated mount. This is an earlier pedal shown installed here, but it gives you an idea of what needs to complete. This fabbed bracket from steel sheet and bolts welded to it as mounting studs at the top and a nut for a bolt at the bottom.



The brake master cylinder. Due to the width of the Coyote 5.0L even using a manual brake master cylinder.  It’s mounted to the firewall can be an issue, The answer is to move the master cylinder over roughly 1 3/4 inches.

This will need widening the pedal support, adding length to the brake pedal arm pin, and moving the clutch pedal over as well. If it’s a manual trans car. You can see in these photos, how they moved the master cylinder over and modified the brake pedal and support accordingly.



Speaking of power brakes, as you can imagine, there is no way you’re getting a traditional vacuum diaphragm booster in such a tight spot. We’ve used hydraulic assist units in previous builds, aka hydroboost.  Need power steering and some additional line plumbing. 




Most of the coolant hoses come with the harness kit.
